THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS
We remember the families of Jack Wyatt and Ruth Worrall who passed away this week.  We also remember Leslie Montgomery and her family with the passing of her mother.  May they feel the Lord's strength and peace during their time of loss.  We also remember Rev.  LeSage as he is off on disability.  We pray that he feels the Lord's healing hands upon him and gives him patience and strength.

CHRISTIAN DEVELOPMENT
Read & Reflect Daily Scripture Readings:    Attached is the calendar of daily scripture readings for August, based on the Common Lectionary. Regular reflection on scripture is the number one catalyst for spiritual growth, and following along with this calendar will give you a framework to guide your devotional reading.
 
Even better is to read the Bible in community! You can join our private Facebook group - Members and Friends of Marshall Memorial - for posts related to the readings. If you are not a member, please contact Richard Hamilton on Facebook for an invitation.
